The evolution of the Bulgarian population
Socioeconomic, political and environmental factors can affect the evolution of populations. The Bulgarian population was subject to such processes during the Ottoman and post-Ottoman periods. The EU-funded POPGEO_BG project will study the Bulgarian population between 1500 and 1920 to produce a description of the population dynamics based on geographical, spatial and temporal standards. It will explore the dimensions of migration and internal displacement, as well as the geographical, climatic and socio-political effects on the development of the Bulgarian population. The results will fill the knowledge gap as regards the country’s population geography and offer a methodology applicable in other South-eastern European areas.
